InterContinental Medina - Dar Al Iman
If you are not participating in Fajr prayer ­ the first prayers of the day, start your day with breakfast in the hotel's Rothana Restaurant. Then visit the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) Mosque, the second most revered Mosque in the world. Afterwards, just a short 20-minutes drive away, is the Quraan Print Shop, the largest of its kind in the Middle East.
Go on a historic tour of the Islamic Mazarat, which will take around two hours. Afterwards, there are some great areas to go shopping, but remember that shopping malls are closed from 1pm to 4pm. Sultana Street is probably the best place to go as it's full of well-known brands. However, you can also shop around the hotel where, in high season, the shops are open almost 24 hours a day.
We suggest you to go to the Cassettes and Books Library located inside the Prophet (PBUH) Mosque. Alternatively, you can go to the Al Nauras and Abu Tarboosh coffee shops, about 20 minutes' drive from the hotel. Here you can choose from a variety of traditional drinks and food, although I would highly recommend the barbecued meats. If you have children with you, we suggest you to take them to Luna Park where they can enjoy rides and computer games. There is also a small zoo located inside the park.
During Hajj and Ramadan, cars are not allowed to enter the central area around the Prophet (PBUH) Mosque.
